Part 1 

Giovanni  Smooth As Silk  Deeper Moisture Conditioner 

Product Claims

“Infuses deep moisture for manageable smoothness.
Detangles while protecting against split ends
Calms unruly hair to alleviate frizz.
Increases shine while smoothing dry or damaged hair”


Doesn’t strip my hair color

good for dry hair

makes hair manageable after wash


Doesn’t increase shine as claimed

Overall Rating 5/5

I have oily thin fine hair and I love this conditioner, after I usually shampoo my hair it gets very dry so conditioner is a must for me and this conditioner makes my hair smooth and easier to comb through it feels luxurious,I would even say salon quality! And alittle goes a long way. I haven’t dabbled to much into cruelty free hair
products besides Yarok and AG Hair both which I reviewed a year ago and if I had to choose between conditioners from all 3 hair product lines I would choose Giovanni as my holy grail conditioner. I use a Demi-permanent hair color and find that this product line helps maintain the longivity of my hair color.

Leaves hair dry


Overall Rating 3.5/5

While the Giovanni Smooth As Silk Conditoner was a big “hit” the Shampoo however was a complete “miss”. I have fine thin hair about medium length and  I had to use more than I normally do to get a decent lather and after I washed it out my hair felt so dry which is why the Giovanni Smooth As Silk Conditioner is a life savior to my hair. If you have color-treated hair then while this shampoo isn’t good for every day use it does help the longevity of color treated hair (because it doesn’t contain sulfates, which strip the hair) and for that I like it but I don’t love it. Another downside is for the price you don’t get much product (8.5oz) depending on your hair length and texture that will determine how much you use and how often you wash your hair which for me would last about a month.

What is your favorite shampoo and conditioner combination?
